Has your home been on the market for months? Haven’t had any offers, or the offers you received were infuriatingly low. Now what?

Maybe it’s priced too high or it doesn’t show well, or it lacks curb appeal. Whatever the case, your next steps should be to take the home off the market, give the listing a “rest,” reevaluate your asking price, consider cosmetic upgrades to the home, and then get back out there. You might even end up selling your home for a price that’s higher than what you originally asked! So lets go a bit further into detail on what to do if your home doesn’t sell:

It’s hard to believe that the fall season is already upon us! Just like the seasons, the real estate market can heat up or cool down depending on the time of year. Fall normally signals the beginning of a slower market, which could be good for buyers. If you’re in the market to buy a home, here are some reasons why fall can be a great time to buy.

“The Strand", named after the gated community in which it is built. The front "door" to the house is actually a reveal into an interior courtyard. The drama of the approach to the house is punctuated by stepping stones crossing a water feature which cascades down a custom glass tile wall into the pool and spa below.

Ocean views can be enjoyed before even arriving at the large frameless glass front door. The palette in the main spaces compliments the spanning ocean views. The warm orange…
